If you're looking for the best drone for kids or newbies, you've come to the right place. Toy drones are perfect for small kids who may not have aspirations to pilot an aircraft for long. As much as we love the Mavic Air 2, unless your child has a lot of flight time under their belt, it's probably not the best fit. Mini drones are excellent for newbies and young children who want to get better at flying while navigating a whole new world. Drones vary in size, cost, range, durability, and handling. We've rounded up a list of our favorite drones for kids and newbies. Check it out.

A drone is a great gift for kids (and adults) of any age. Mini drones are inexpensive, easy to learn, and provide countless hours of fun for the whole family. Which drone is right for you?

If I had to pick one drone, I'd grab the Holy Stone HS110D. This mini quadcopter is simple for beginners, thanks to its ability to listen to voice commands, and it has enough advanced features to keep older kids and those with some flight time under their belts challenged.

If you have young kids and don't want to invest too much, grab the Force1 UFO 4000. The blades are protected at all times, so they can never snap off when your little pilot runs into a wall or tree.

If performing drone stunts is on your list of must-haves, you'll love the EACHINE E010. It's a mini toy drone that performs 3D flips and rollovers with ease, and it's so much fun to fly.
